CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – A shooting that killed two and wounded four at a North Carolina university left students scrambling for shelter and prompted fresh calls for ways to keep campuses safe.
A vigil was planned for Wednesday on the campus of the University of North Carolina-Charlotte, where the shooting on Tuesday upended the last day of class.
The governor vowed a hard look at what happened in order to prevent future shootings.
Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat, told reporters that students should not have to fear for their lives on campus.
He added: “In the coming days we will take a hard look at all of this to see what we need to do going forward.”
